Situation: Built in 1903, the sellers hold documents and old deeds dating back to the original construction date, with the names of former residents.

In keeping with this era, one will find the original fireplaces in many of the rooms and sash windows (all of which were refurbished in the last few years - rehung with new cords, waxed runners and refitted to stop drafts). Further works include rear and side elevations which were repointed in 2022 and new roof / chimney flashing. The front door was replaced with a custom-made new Oak door in 2022, identical in design to the original and incorporates the authentic stained glass. There is also original marble and terracotta tile flooring.

The stunning kitchen / family room boasts Oak framed windows and garden doors which were custom-made by a Mid-Wales craftsman. The windows and glass garden door have Newbury Range fasteners and lever lock latches of solid brass with a polished nickel finish. The vaulted ceiling in the dining area, the Velux windows and the clerestory window were designed to maximise light and sun throughout the day.

The kitchen boasts Shaker-Style cabinets, designed and made-to-measure by Richard Burbridge Ltd from solid Ash. A central large island includes drawers, integrated bin, electrical points, wine fridge and space for stools. A double ceramic Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher and a tap providing instant hot water completes the kitchen.

The ground floor benefits from a shower room which includes a walk-in shower with ceramic plate and double head shower, aqua board, glass walls, extractor fan, small sink and toilet. The utility room has space for a washer, dryer, fridge freezer and provides access to outside.

The first floor enjoys a split-level aspect with three bedrooms and a family bathroom with white Italian marble flooring.

On the upper floor, there are two further bedrooms and a very useful storage room.

The charming and private garden has a gated side return and rear wall running along the boundary to a large garden cabin at the bottom (which has electricity but no plumbing). There are two patios and several fruit bearing trees.
